But the chart here you showed all seems to be well within its range limit. I am deeply surprised on how well this DK can hold its own. Very impressive!
*i.e. I am a bit concern for brian19876, whose running at 4814Mhz with the max temp of 82c?! Kinda scary right there.
Rep+ for the help!
Glad to help. Oh, the 72C is actually the max for Tcase (the IHS), as opposed to T-Junction (core temp).
It's a common confusion, since AFAIK, Intel doesn't specify a recommended TJ-max for SB, other than the throttle that kicks in at 95C, and the 98C shutdown.
I also found this rather odd post from someone who apparently works at Intel--I suppose this is the official line, since that is from the spec sheet, but I would think the Tcores are also important:
For a safe V max, once again Intel didn't spec anything for SB (the commonly quoted 1.52 is VID, not VCC), but there is this poll and interesting discussion (a few posts say there is a 1.4V spec for SB-E):
